More Leaves

Before:
LeafLove-sooc


After:
LeafLove-wm


This little oak leaf was stuck in between the boards on a step off our deck.
Something about it was kind of beautiful yet pitiful at the same time, how it just sat there almost looking at me as if to say 'Help! I'm stuck!'
:)


LeafLove-sooc LeafLove-wm

I use PSE 8 and here's what I did:

I duplicated the background layer and set it to overlay.
Then I added a Kim Klassen texture to it, and also set blend mode to overlay.
And that is it!

This one tree has such deep oranges and reds and little hints of yellows.

Even the leafs on the ground show off their beauty.
